Upcoming Scholarships for 2022-2023

We are proud to announce two scholarship programs for 2022-2023. For the third year, we are pleased to launch the Murtaza Jaffer Alloo Memorial Scholarship, a scholarship in memory of the Marhūm who was a strong advocate of ongoing self-improvement. This application is open to those at all levels of higher education or vocational training programs and the award is for $2,500. For our 7th consecutive year, we are also running our general scholarship program, for those with financial need in post-secondary education. There are multiple awards available, each up to $2,000. Applications are due on June 19th, 2022, and you can apply at jaffari.org/scholarships.
